Since the very beginnings of our nation there were those who believed the government should play a large in our lives and those who believed government’s role should be as little as possible. Today we’re having the same debate with a different set of players. There are forces on both the left and right who believe government should play a larger role in our lives. They believe we need to be cared for like helpless children. That we cannot be trusted to make our own choices because our choices may contradict how the government wants us to choose. That only government knows what’s best for us. And the sad thing is many of our fellow citizens have unknowingly helped them achieve their goals. These are the citizens who cannot grasp any understanding about liberty, freedom and the constitution so they have willingly surrendered there liberties for some false notion of a utopia crafted by federal masters. They have been conditioned their entire lives to view government as a benevolent force that is here to right the wrongs of capitalism, shelter the homeless, rein in the excesses of society, protect the environment, punish those who succeed with a progressive tax system, help those who cannot help themselves and make healthcare decision that should be between a doctor and their patient. In truth they are nothing more than nationalists who desire an all powerful national government.
On the other side of the coin you have those who believe that government expansion into our lives should not only be halted but that government in itself should be massively reduced in size. They are tired of being told what they can and cannot do. They are tired of having their liberties infringed upon. They are tired of all the regulation, all the rules imposed on them by a detached from the people group of elitists in Washington D.C. They are tired of seeing the constitution being ignored by the people they entrusted to support and defend it. They are tired of being lied to by one politician after another. They understand the meaning of liberty and are selfish with it.
This election isn’t about Democrats or Republicans; it’s about the role we want government to play in our lives. Do we want a government that continues to expand and become more intrusive in our lives or do we a government that contracts with less intervention in our lives. If you vote for a candidate who has a record of voting on measures and bills that expands the role of government in our lives than you siding with the forces who believe we need to be cared for like helpless children. If you are voting for a candidate who has a record of reducing the role that government plays in our lives you are side with the forces who side with the individual and liberty. It’s not rocket science. It’s really that simple. Now on to the links.

Ronald Reagan’s time for choosing speech was one of the greatest speeches ever. These are things we need to be thinking about when we step into the voting booth this November. We have a choice and with that choice we must decide what role do we want government to play in our lives. Thanks for all the outstanding articles. As always you guys are the heat. Have a great week.
Liberty forever, freedom for all!
